All flounder are hatched swimming like a normal fish upright at a certain point they lay down and there eye migrates to one side and they become a bottom dweller. The ones with the mouth on the other side are rare and for some reason there genes made themchoose togo the other side!!

I just went through the pics of the 68 flounder we've gigged this year and they're all left handed fish.

The hunt is on tonight for the rare right hander.

How do you tell if they're right or left? Looking from the tail or from the head?
